Council Fined for Banning Headscarf

Published torsdag 9 juli 2009 kl 13.10
Hiba El-Ghawabi has been fighting her case since 2007

A young woman was told to remove her headscarf - or loose her job. Now the Equality Ombudsman has told the local council where she worked that they acted improperly and will have to pay a fine.

The woman worked in a café run by the local council, which claimed that there were hygienic reasons for her not to wear to headscarf to work. The Equality Ombudsman is prepared to defend the woman in court, unless the council agrees to pay a settlement, Swedish Radio reports.
